It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school of which we are very proud. This booklet is designed to explain how Glenmere is organised and what we try to do while your son or daughter is with us.
Starting school can be an exciting and slightly anxious time, but we try to make it as straight forward as possible. We are fortunate to have a committed group of staff, who all want to give your child the best possible start in life. Not only do we strive to achieve the highest level of Literacy and Numeracy but we also aim to provide an environment that will promote the all-round growth of our pupils. We are continually striving to refine and improve our methods of teaching in order to raise your child’s standards of achievement and to prepare them for a life in which they can confidently use a wide range of skills and become useful members of society.
Glenmere also places a high priority on developing the whole child through socialisation, assemblies, enrichment, play and extra-curricular activities. We always welcome parents into the school and if you wish to help in the school in any way, then please contact your son or daughter’s teacher. They will be only too glad of the extra help! Also if you have any worries or concerns about your child, please contact the school to arrange a meeting either with the class teacher or myself. This brochure will give you an outline of what we do at Glenmere and a snapshot of our performance. If, when you have read it you would like more detailed information, please contact the school so that we will be able to answer your questions.
